Starting at 1 p.m. in the Auditorium, first floor
The event day at Design Museum will include a unique workshop by Design Museum and the Iittala & Arabia Design Centre. The theme of the workshop will be decorating your own plate. Visitors will have the opportunity to design their own porcelain plate and to decorate it with decals, producing a unique plate with a decorative design. The participants can also create their own patterns by cutting the decal material with scissors or by making collages from existing designs and forms.
Participation with the museum admission ticket. The plate and the material for making the decoration will be provided at the workshops. The decorating work will be supervised by artist and designer Viivi Lehto and Design Museum’s workshop instructors.
Participation in the nonstop workshop as places become available – no advance bookings. The plate workshop is meant for everyone. No special skills are required. It is recommended for over three-year-olds. Children under ten must be accompanied by an adult. The workshop will operate as long as the material is available. The free workshop will have 120 plates to be decorated, with one plate per participant.
After the workshop the plates with the decals will be fired at the ceramics kiln of the Arabia Design Centre to affix the decoration and the participants can then collect them. The plates can be collected from the Iittala & Arabia Design Centre (address Hämeentie 135) during opening hours (Tue. – Sun. Noon to 4 p.m.) between Saturday 15 February and Sunday 1 March. Visitors collecting their plates can take the opportunity to visit the Iittala & Arabia Design Centre and Design Museum Arabia which have free entrance.
